    and after that strike out by you you can grab more pine with the below follow up question

    Q:tell me one that has made me more safe..

    this should be priceless
    I will take a stab at your two questions, as long as you are willing to accept Liberal = Democratic. Which I am not, but for the purpose of the thread I will.

    I wonder how many of Martinez older relatives had drivers licenses when they were illegal?
    And how are her current scandals going?
    Different strokes when you're a GOP eh Xy?

    As for Cantor, I now look for him to work with Boehner and Ryan to get back at current cutthroat TEAts in the House.
    The "Hastert" rule only says "half" of the GOP caucus.
    That's 117 members and should be easy to get.
    Though you may not want to admit it, in the long run it's best for the GOP to get things done before the election .

    Only in the way current con posters think can a Cantor loss be a Democratic loss.
    The current revolution is within the conservative ranks--continue to have at it .

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    Cantor deserved this for obstructing the Presidency since election night 2008.
    And the one issue Cantor wasn't a TEA-loon on, he got a huge DOSE of GOP-demonization at the local level.

    Cantor waffled on immigration, trying to please all factions of the GOP.
    We all know that is impossible.

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    But you have been "quiet" when it comes to the Mississippi primary in two weeks.
    Linc has pegged McDaniel since last year, as you know.
    Think Dems and their contributors sat up tonite?

    You've been expecting a Mourdock/Akin moment, but none of us can predict these tsunamis/rogue waves in politics.

    Now, Cantor may actually work with Boehner and Obama on Real-Life problems .

    But I didn't vote in the Republican this year, I voted in the Democratic one.

    Indeed it is, it's like how liberals claim to be all for women and minorities unless it's a woman and a minority and she happens to be Republican then, suddenly, their accomplishments are not so laudable any more.

    As for Cantor, I now look for him to work with Boehner and Ryan to get back at current cutthroat TEAts in the House.

    It's not a matter of not wanting to admit anything, it's more a matter of extreme distrust of someone like you expressing what's really good for the party that you just as soon didn't even exist. No offense.

    That is such a phenomenally disingenuous accusation, winky-emoticon or no.

    I find it hard to describe a legal tactic involving voting in an election either reprehensible or immoral. It is somewhat shady, in my view, but politics is a shady enterprise.

    Besides, from what I know of past efforts, they don't make a big difference in the outcome. I suspect Cantor lost all by himself, and it was because his GOP constituents wanted the other guy. And if a bunch of democrats were motivated enough to see him gone to get off their couches and vote, good for them. That's what elections are all about.

    What do women have to do with this part of my post you quoted?
    Is this your "style" of debating with a stunner upset of Cantor?
    I wouldn't expect you to be deflecting like Travis and Apache.
    Check out all of your posts--almost nothing on Cantor.

    like you expressing what's really good for the party that you just as soon didn't even exist. No offense.
    Trust is a two-way street, as we've seen from the many tentacles of the GOP since 2008.
    Christ Almighty, you guys Can'tor even get along with each other.

    Try the part where I mentioned Hastert/Cantor/Boehner/Ryan--who will lead tomorrow ?
